Find the sum of the first ten terms of the sequence 4, 1, 6, ........41 in the tenth term. The answer is 185. I need help finding the rate, and the set up of the equation, I can't seem to figure it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In such a case, the value of the nth terms is given by the formula \[s _{n} = n/2 (a + l)\] where sn stands for sum a = first term which is 4 in this case l = last term which is 41 in this case n = no of term u want to find which is 10 in yr case

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so putting in the values u get \[s _{10} = 10/2 (4 + 41) = 5 x 37 = 185\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0U r most welcome !! I suggest you collect all the formulas related to Arithmetic progression, understand the use of each one and memorize them. Then u will b on top of yr sums (and hopefully yr class too!!)
